Comments about Although my child is still a little too young for the entire book he does like doing the numbers, counting, and shapes sections. This will be a great book to help him continue to learn and grown as he prepares for Kindergarten. This book has the skills that he will be learning and it will be nice to be able to help him at home without him feeling like he has to do homework. I want him to enjoy learning and this is a great way to do it. Also, Ace the talking dog pen is a wonderful,, encouraging device to help my child when he chooses and answer. It also allows him to be able to learn on his own and know if he has picked the correct answer. - Was this a gift?:

Comments about This is the best way ever to make Math fun! I love the Hot Dots jr Collection and so does my son. He is a HUGE fan of this Hot Dots Jr. Let's Master Kindergarten Math set. The set has 2 great, interactive sturdy spiral-bound books and "Ace"-the Talking, Teaching DogTM Hot Dots pen. The are bright and colorful and so easy to use. The set has around 100 lessons so it keeps my son engaged all the time! It works very simple, there are black dots next to each question and my son then picks an answer and put his fun pen on the black dot. If the question is correct the pen will turn green and talk and give him positive reinforcement. If he gets the answer wrong it will turn red and tell him to try again! He gets very excited when he gets the answer correct! - Was this a gift?:

Comments about My nephew loved playing with Hot Dot's Let's Master Kindergarten Math. I believe it made him feel like a big kid. He was doing homework. It was fun for him yet he was learning at the same time. He liked ACE, the pen, that makes sounds and talks when you get a problem right or wrong. It kept him occupied for about 25 minutes. I'll be keeping these on hand for the other little ones as well. - Was this a gift?:

Comments about This is another great set from Hot Dots but this one offers more lessons and program designed for Kindergarten aged children. These math lessons help them learn without boring them. Perfect for teaching and fun at the same time. - Was this a gift?:

By Miss Frugal Mommy from Georgia Comments about My four year old son will be starting kindergarten next fall and I wanted to start preparing him. This his been a fantastic resource to help introduce him to the things he will need to know when starting kindergarten. He always is much more engaged in learning activities that are fun and Hot Dots Jr. is exactly that... fun! This has helped build his confidence and is something he know asks to use, instead of having to be told it's learning time. Such a great product that I highly recommend! Was this review helpful?

By Donner from Virginia About Me Education Oriented, First Time Parent, Working Parent Pros Cons Best Uses Comments about My Kindergarten son really enjoys this product! He giggles when the puppy vibrates for a correct answer. He even asked to bring Hot Dots along with him for a long car ride. Being an elementary math teacher, I like that fractions and money are addressed at an early age in the books included. Fun math practice and reinforcement - Was this a gift?:

Comments about I have been really impressed with the Hot Dots program and the way in which they develop from grade to grade. The mechanism stays the same, and the puzzles are similar but each level tests a new skill in a different way and builds on a core foundation. The Kindergarten Math book was more challenging for my son, fresh into Kindergarten this year, he had yet to encounter the written version of a number - eight as opposed to 8. He was excited to see the letters he had been learning, but a little dubious about the words themselves. He said he liked the "other numbers" better. Still, a nice introduction now and it gets him used to the idea of symbols and their real words. As much as he enjoyed Problem Solving in the Pre- books, he really enjoyed Data and Statistics in the Kindergarten books. They closely resembles activities his class does every day in counting down the school days and months on the calendar. The book was good in that, it gave him a task he was familiar with and followed it up with something more challenging. Both books kept this pace and gave him a really good rhythm of encouragement and challenges. By the time we got to the "Challenges" section he was really excited about the math books, though I think we need to do this set several times over before he's ready to move on. - Was this a gift?:

Comments about I received the Hot Dots Jr. Let's Master Kindergarten Math for review purposes. Even though my younger daughter is in Pre-K, I got this set for her for when she masters the Pre-K set. I have gone through the books, and everything aligns up perfectly with the math skills my older daughter learned in Kindergarten last year. I love being able to provide my kids with "toys" that actually teach them things they need to know. We love this line. Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend Was this review helpful?
